Speak to our nurses
You can speak to our specialist nurses on our free Support Line if you need support after someone has died from pancreatic cancer.
You may feel numb, exhausted or worried. You may be relieved that they are no longer suffering. You may have trouble sleeping or keep going over what happened in your mind. If everything happened very quickly, you might not have felt prepared or you might question why you didn’t have more time with your loved one.
There is support available to help you deal with your emotions after your family member has died.
“My young daughter used our local hospice’s child bereavement service and I cannot praise them enough. Their expertise in a delicate matter was fantastic.”
“I saw a bereavement counsellor once before he died then again afterwards. Those two sessions were the most valuable as I felt I could "indulge" myself and not feel I needed to be "strong". I could cry and not worry that I might be worrying someone else.”
